Event Description

Mark Lakeman is back in Vancouver THIS FRIDAY to deliver a full-day (10am-5pm) placemaking workshop as part of the City Commons Placemaking Course! We have a limited number of spots open for outside participants at a cost of only $60. Mark will teach us about the "Nuts & Bolts" of placemaking, going from theory to practice, drawing from his extensive experience as the founder of City Repair and the annual Village Building Convergence in Portland.

Mark will be joined by co-facilitator Jacky Essombe, who will share the stories, songs and movements of the Cameroonian village culture that she comes from and still embodies wherever she goes.
